Sea otter theme continues this week at tonight's Fireside Lecture

The public is invited to another presentation in this year’s Fireside Lecture series titled “A Sea of Otters,” with guest speaker and expert James Bodkin.

Bodkin, from Anchorage, is a retired research wildlife biologist with the U.S. Geologic Survey. He will present the latest scientific data on these important, and sometimes controversial, mammals.

The U.S. Forest Service-sponsored lectures begin at 6:30 p.m. and repeat at 8 p.m. at the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center.

As always, the event is free and open to the public.
